I found this and thought it would go with your post....<quoted text>Skom; Peace and Blessings to you ~ I don't want to interfere in your 'debates' with IANS, but it is harder to walk away than fight.
On saying that, and probably saying it to the wrong person, but I am intending to go and see the Dalai Lama and very excited to boot.
BEYOND RELIGION, THE BENEFITS OF LIVING ETHICALLY.
Beyond Religion, the 14th Dalai Lama on the Benefits of Living Ethically provides thought provoking scope to explore the positive impact of ethical behaviour on ourselves, our loved ones, fellow human beings, communities, countries and ultimately our shared global community. With relevance across all Australian society - the discussion of the benefits of life lived ethically will resonate with individuals, families, academics, educators, medical, legal and commercial professionals, regulators, leaders, business owners, people of all ages andcultural backgrounds.
The public events throughout the visit will carry the message from His Holiness recent book,Beyond Religion; Ethics for a Whole World.

I always recall the words of JESUS ~
John 10:16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one.....
And we have no idea who these other sheep will be that hear the voice of JESUS.... but perhaps we can 'assume' that they will hear HIS voice once they have given up their ghost.
Just let it go between you and he; and bring back to yourself inner peace :) Blessings of Peace to us all, we are all HIS Children, and HE loves us xx
If Jesus, Moses, the Buddha and Mohammed
were to bump into each other along the road
and go have a cup of tea or whatever,
I think we all know
they would treat one another far different and far better
than a lot of their followers would.
